There is no way I would agree to be intimate with someone who had a diet that was wildly divergent from my own. I've never dated anyone who did not like to eat the way I did more than once, maybe. WTH would I? Would you?
The way I see it, if someone does not like to eat most of the things that I like to eat well then, there isn't much hope that they are going to allow me to be intimate in any way that I know how to be intimate. Put simply and with obdurate bluntness, I could hang with a vegetarian or someone who refuses to eat salt, but I would not want to marry one or the other. That'd be too painful.
Tell you what though. This brief passage from the article is a prime example of how anyone who is interviewed by a reporter should ask to review the transcript of the interview before it goes to print.
Ben Abdalla, 42, a real estate agent in Boca Raton, Fla., said he preferred to date fellow vegetarians because meat eaters smell bad and have low energy.Ben, you're kidding, right? I mean about the low energy thing.
